During the 18 April 1950 episode of "The Alan Young Show", there was background noise during the Monica Lewis segment. Since the episode was only broadcast live on a few west coast stations, it was decided to re-do the segment, and edit it into the kinescope shown in the rest of the US. Here is that re-take, which includes the clapperboard at the beginning. Topics: Classic TV, Television, Early Television, 1950s, 50s, Fifties, The Alan Young Show, Monica Lewis
A 1951 episode of the Emmy-winning variety series "The Alan Young Show". This episode includes a sketch about two people who meet at their doors, and a sketch about a department store. Complete with original advertising and rare network ID (my first upload with the network ID in ages!). Not the best show you'll ever see, but quite charmingly dated.

Rare lost episode of Mr Ed. One of only two episodes that are in the Public Domain. This episode is, essentially, an episode length public service announcement on behalf of the US treasury. Wilbur and Mr Ed extol the virtues of payroll saving plans and their benefits for the American way of life.
